In 1930 Martyr Fazlollah Mahallati was born in Mahallat town in a religious family and because of his interest in religious science, after finishing primary education went to Qom city and entered to "Hoze Elmiyeh"- religious science education center. In his first days of activities Martyr Mahallati joined to "Fadaeian E Islam" group because of his challenging moral against oppression and Islamic beliefs. This group was included of Muslim youth believers that had acted against enemies of Iran and Islam and also had acted against damned Shah's government. Martyr Navvab Safavi was Leader of this group. After detaining and martyrdom of Navvab Safavi and his other comrades, Martyr Mahallati became deputy of Shiite religious reference and leader, Ayatollah Boroujerdi.
After announcing of Imam Khomeini's religious reference and leadership because of Ayatollah Boroujerdi decease; Martyr Mahallati with heart and soul was at service of Islamic Revolution and to the last moments of establishment, epidemic influences and triumph of Islamic Revolution was beside Imam Khomeini for long challenges and battles and many a times, because of his activities being imprison and tortured.
Qom, as a religious city was famous and under attention of brave and young templar who walked in Islam's way; they go to Qom from all over the Iran for learning by great religious professors and being aware of Islamic issues and sciences. As a matter of fact, this city and it religious science education center; Hoze Elmieh, was an indicator way for templar and their entering to this place is as their starting point of activities. When he come Qom, being entered to political activities and atmosphere and it was a new world for him. When he entered Qom, was just 16 years old and was a teenager.
Comradeship with Martyr Navvab Safavi:
When I was at Qom for 2 year (1946-1947), I communicated with Ayatollah Mohammad Taghi Khansari and because of that communication, I saw Martyr Navvab and his comrades and my friendliness and sociability with them became more and better. This was a cause to me defiance morality emerged in me. Martyr Navvab virtuous man and this was his attraction that influenced every person that met him, especially me.
For some years, I was in cooperation with "Fadaeian E Islam" and engaged in challenges and also study. The first issue that I had participate, was Reza Khan's corpse entrance to Iran. This group did not like that his corpse inhume in country and believed that his crimes and felonies should be divulge. Therefore, in our secret meetings, decided that after Martyrdom Purification of some of comrades; they go to Feizieh School and give a speech. Our speaker was "Sayed Hashem Hosseini". According to the program he should being at school before all and upon platform must gave his speech. We spread an announcement that it was written:" tomorrow evening at 5 o'clock, clergy sun will be shine on. Dormant facts will be declared".
No one knows that what is the topic and who will be give a speech. That day all of us observed a fast and Seyed Hashem stood on platform and declared Reza Khan's vices. Some people knocked-about and servant school came to stopping him but the story was really clear. Battle was started and every day some body gave a speech and templars gathered together.
Acquaintedness with "Ayatollah Kashani":
When I was communicated with Fadaeian group, I acquainted with Ayatollah Kashani. He banished to Lebanon and was backing to country. That time I was still student and was cooperated with Fadeian E Islam group and also visited Martyr Navvab in hidden houses. In these visits i saw Ayatollah Kashani and recommended my self to him. He sent me many times to the other towns for advertising and awareness of people.
Relationship with Great Ayatoolah Boroujerdi:
On of political activities of Martyr Mahallati that could promote his view for all was a mission that great leader of Hoze Elmieh, Ayatollah Boroujerdi gave him. Although Martyr Mahallati was 22 but this mission indicated that his political and ideological percipience is much high that could cope with political issues.
His mission was searching about a riot that Hezbe Toodeh were started at Qom on 1952. Conclusions of this research were published of his interview in Taraghi journal (Jan 1952).
Imam Khomeini and reference ship:
After Ayatollah Boroujerdi's death, I consulted to Imam and had relation and friendliness with him because of following of a religious leader and wariness. There were nominated some persons for reference and leadership of Shiite after dying of Ayatollah Boroujerdi. Imam Khomeini did not come out of his home because he did not advertise for himself. Although in newspapers he nominated for leadership and reference of Shiite but his treatise was not published till that time. Imam did not like to participate in these issues and most of the times he retiring from these problems even when Mr. Molaei told him:" we are your imitators and need to your treatise".
Finally, templar brothers took his treatise and put forth it with their own money. One day I brought some money for Imam as his share. Imam gave me an advice and told:" now that we do not have Ayatollah Boroujerdi you should not think that he was our sustaining; god is our sustaining. You must keep templar's honorableness till the others did not think that we are needy. You should not say even a sentence that get away templar's respectability. At your states you could not support me and also should not backbite of others. You do your tasks and look through people. After dying of Ayatollah Boroujerdi some bodies want to make conflicts between templar; we should take care of doing our duty". Then I put the money for him but he told:" this is Imam's share not mine and you! Return it to mosque and take of it whatever that you need".
I told:" sir, I don't need it any more. Now, we need you for templar brothers and other jobs. With your permission, according to your order I will do for Imam's share".
At the same day Imam Khomeini wrote for me a warrant that SAVAK staffs took it off when they were searching in my house.
Beginning of Martyr Mahallati's Detentions:
My first detention was for an issue on Bahman of 1962; we went to meeting so much. Both of preaching and Imam Jomeh meetings were laid the foundations of and I was responsible for publish and spreading to his announcements and because of that had to participate in mentioned meetings. One day in the morning, we had a meeting in Mr. Ahmad Lavasani's house and agreed to have another meeting in Ayatollah Gharavi Kashani's house. I and some of comrades and templar brothers were there; suddenly Colonel Taheri that was a malignant and rude person, with another colonel of SAVAK fell into house and detained us. Prison agents turned voice of Shah's speech on for teasing us, on top of the building but it does not have any effect on us. However, after finishing their flagrant referendum released us. It was my first imprisoning after starting Imam's reformation but some times when went to towns for pulpit, I got imprisoned but it was not very considerable.
Khordad 15's Night:
I and Ayatollah Motaharri had speech meetings at Nirouye Havaee Street; air force officers did not come there; it was a susceptible place. We camped in Hasht Metri Street; first Martyr Motahhari gave his speech and then me. On Mharram, night 12, after finishing Martyr Motaharri's speech; governmental agents were detained him. Our fiends that found out what was going on; on a paper warned me that cut the meeting but I did not and lacerated that paper. My friends knew that they will detain me, prepared a car for me and at the crowd got me to car and escaped me. There was a governmental car, too but our comrades blocked their way till I escaped. Eventually, they could not imprison me that night but in the morning I found that they could detain Imam Khomeini also in Shiraz could detain Ayatollah Mahallati and Mr. Dastgheib and in Mashhad Mr. Ghomi. In Tehran they imprisoned about 42 of templar brothers. I was hidden about 1- 2 month but several times they went to my house for my detention.
Imam's Arrival to Iran:
It was a wonderful night in Iran. Martyr Beheshti called me and told:" they contacted with me from Paris, and told Imam Khomeini wants to come in country. Imam said that: ((at south neighborhood of Tehran rent a small house for me. Its building should not be new)). Now, please collect friends together and then come to my house". Within Martyr Motaharri and the other friends went to Martyr Beheshti's house and hold a comprehensive meeting. Martyr Motaharri suggested that we should choose some of ourselves for Welcome Committee.
To looking forward to Imam, we established a Welcome Committee that was included of nine of us. Then in a comprehensive program asked all of Friday Imam to choose best youths for Imam's Guard. The guard established by 65000 persons. They had under control everything from "Airport" to "Behesht E Zahra" (cemetery). Guards were linked together at this distant for safe keeping of Imam. SAVAK organization was shocked. I remembered that last boss of SAVAK, General Moghaddam, sent us one of his precedence staffs that told: we are anxious about Imam's life. Order what ever you want, we would prepare for you.
We answered:" take care of your lives, we do not need to take care of Imam's life; in addition we gathered so much guard force for his security. It is not beneficial for you to coming in torrent of population because your life will fell in danger".
General sent word:" but we have some cars that you do not have". We reject their suggestion. However, we could provide two bullet proof Chevrolet Blazer by our forces attempt; if one of them suddenly got out of order, second one will be ready. Finally, we could prepare premises for Imam's arrival.

On 11 Februry, we could conquer the radio station. We put in practice his commands one by one; with microphone read announcements in front of university. Compounds were fell down one by one but we must conquered radio station because of it's befits. In order to reaching this purpose I and my accompaniers decided to conquer radio station. One of engineers prepared himself for inactivating transmitter of Seyed Khandan Bridge and I took some armed men. It was 3 o'clock afternoon. We arrived to Ghasr street crossing. We wanted to go on more but shooting was increased then we made a call, they told us come from North and we will opened the door for you and finally we could enter the building. The engineer could start up the systems, and then I without any introducing sat behind of microphone and told:" this is voice of Islamic Revolution". And then read Imam's message. After this, played "Khomeini ey Imam" and next played Koran. At six o'clock we heard that T.V building at Jam e Jam conquered.

Imam's Sadness Because of Martyrdom of Ayatollah Mahallati:
Martyr Mahallati's wife says:
"Haji Agha" always told:" with Martyr's families act affable". It was on third day of his Martyrdom that Imam Khomeini's wife came to our house and told:" once it was at Master Motahhari's martyrdom that Imam got sad and cried and now it is second time because of Mr. Mahallati".
One day we had gone to Imam Khomeini's presence and he told:" At first, I should say condolences to myself then to you! I wanted from God give you patience".
Imam's Interest to Martyr Mahallati:
Imam Khomeini liked Martyr Mahallati so much and respected him, too. If there was a special issue and Martyr Mahallati was not there, Imam told:" wait for "" Haji Sheikh"". Imam used this familiar term for martyr Mahallati.
Never Without Imam:
Martyr Mahallati's wife says:
At the night of Islamic Revolution's victory, evening Martyr Mahallati called me and told:" tonight I could not come home"; although he did not come home for 16 days. But some days came for lunch and then went to "Alavi School" at Imam's presence. I insisted on him to back home at night but he answered:" we are at service of Imam and every thing happened to him; it will happened to us, too. I do not like to be alive after Imam Khomeini."
An Epicedium for Martyr Mahallati:
Your indignation is gave to storm face
Or it is on worried loads
It seems that to all rivers with your pride
Gave the ever ardency of rebellion
Or your lover and aflame glance
Gave to on the run Gazelles
Then Gazelles covey is ashamed
They gave your smell to mount and dessert
From fire of your glance
They backed life again to winter sun
You come with every spring from the way, this breeze
Your soul is given to body of trees
Oh my friend, your shoulders how kind
Delivered up to regret bullets
But you are alive because without you
Sun, earth and sky are dead.
